So, having sourced a piece of faux fur I set about making my own. I found some Scotch reusable clear sticky pads in my local Staples and, finding I'd only need to use a quarter of a pad on each mic slot, I made a hole in each one with a standard office hole punch. As each pack has 18 tabs that is more than enough for the foreseeable future.
From shooting a couple of sample clips with and without the muff, it does seem to cut down the wind noise by a large amount. Of course, just when I want a good stiff breeze to really try it, the weather gods decide to only provide a gentle breeze!
Thankfully the fur muffs/brows can be removed when not shooting video so saving me from any Duxford snaparazzi humour.
